If you are fortunate enough to have aging parents who still live in the family home, you know that the day will come when they will move out. Whether this occurs because of deteriorating health or death itself, you or someone in your family will need to consider what to do with years of accumulated furniture, clothes, records, knickknacks, memorabilia, appliances, and more. If this occurs because of death, the process might need to be quick if you need to sell a home. On the other hand, if your parents are in stable, though declining health, you may have time enough to make a plan that reduces the volume of possessions over time. Regardless, cleaning out the family home is inevitable.
